Lauren Midwinter

Website: Website

London-based director Lauren Midwinter has a nose for a compelling narrative and a love for building character.  Lauren likes finding the unusual in the ordinary and has translated her concepts into branded/commercials, art, drama and documentary. She has created work for major household names and luxury brands, such as GAP, Red Bull, Marc Jacobs and NARS.  With an eye for interesting visuals, Lauren’s aesthetic has been described as painterly and textural. It can range from light-touch naturalism to beautiful vivid drama. 
Rather than film school, Lauren trained in directing at Drama Centre London, Central St Martins. Here, she learnt hands-on how to direct a range of work; from theatre and opera to film and radio. As such Lauren has a sensitive, skilled approach to working with talent. 
Her films have been screened at worldwide festivals, shown in art galleries, within international flagship stores and with major online publications. Lauren has just finished writing her second TV pilot.
